Social media precautions in divorce cases

While divorce is a very personal situation, an individual going through the process in Florida might be occasionally tempted to vent on a social media page. However, it is easy to lose sight of the long-term implications of some postings, which makes it wise to consider these matters in advance. Social media and other electronic activities can create evidence that could come back to haunt an individual in a divorce court setting.

Issues with respecting parental rights in Florida

It is common after a divorce for both parents to have some sort of physical custody or visitation rights. However, this doesn't always mean that a noncustodial parent gets to take advantage of his or her visitation time. Even when the parents are awarded joint legal custody, which is common, the non-custodial parent is often taken advantage of.

Alimony and time-sharing bill vetoed

Florida governor Gov. Rick Scott has vetoed Senate Bill 250, which would have brought sweeping changes to Florida's alimony and parental time-sharing laws. The bill would have limited judges' discretion in awarding alimony after a divorce and created a presumption for equal parental time-sharing for men and women in divorce cases.

Summer tips for divorced parents

The end of the school year brings lots of freedom for many Florida children, but when their parents are divorced it can cause some logistical problems as well. Therefore, it is important that a parenting plan include how a custodial and non-custodial parent will handle certain issues during the summer months. Ideally, both parents will know 60 days in advance whether either one has vacation or other plans during that time.

Why military divorces can get complicated

When military service members in Florida go through a divorce, they face a few extra complications that divorcing civilians don't have to deal with. The military has its own laws that sometimes cause problems when they intersect with state laws. There is also a culture of old-fashioned family values in the military that sometimes results in divorces being kept hush-hush.
